Whitney shook her head at the skycap who offered to take her luggage; her single leather bag had wheels on it, and she had learned in years of flying never to let go of the matching carry-on that held her emergency supplies. She looked at her watch and wanted to swear. The delay in Customs hadn’t been the problem; it had been brief. And they had left Tokyo right on time. It was the long, unscheduled layover in Alaska to check out some mysterious malfunction in the monster aircraft’s engines that had landed her in a predicament. If it hadn’t been for that stupid airplane, she wouldn’t have missed her connection with the flight that should have taken her on home. She yawned, and shook her head wearily. All she wanted right now was to open the door of her own apartment and creep wearily into her own bed to recuperate from jet lag and exhaustion.
